Biographical Sketch

In the fall of 1951, President Wiggins decided that the university should begin a self-evaluation program. Though the main purpose of the study was to evaluate the university's graduate programs, the study surveyed both the undergraduate and graduate programs. A faculty committee was created to serve as a steering committee for the faculty study section.

Each department was asked to submit a report on its doctoral programs and to complete a report based on questioned set by the self-evaluation committee. A composite report was compiled from these various departmental reports, after which the committee reviewed the report and made suggestions. A final draft of the report was then completed.
